Kinetics : RateConstantUnits (8 Variations)
The isomerization of CH3NC to CH3CN has a rate constant of 0.46 s-1 at 600 K.

(1) Based on the units of the rate constant, what is the order of the reaction? {1:MULTICHOICE:zero-order#No, that is not correct.~=first-order#Correct!~second-order#No, that is not correct.~third-order#No, that is not correct.}

(2) What is the concentration of CH3CN after 0.20 minutes of reaction if the initial concentration is 0.10 M? {1:NUMERICAL:=4e-4:1e-5#Correct!~%50%4e-4:5e-5#Close, but not quite.}(Do not include units!)

Frank Westheimer's Early Demonstration of Enzymatic Specificity  Addison Ault
Reviews one of the most significant accomplishments of one of the most respected chemists of the 20th centurya series of stereospecific enzymatic oxidation and reduction experiments that led chemists to recognize enantiotopic and diastereotopic relationships of atoms, or groups of atoms, within molecules.

Data Pooling in a Chemical Kinetics Experiment: The Aquation of a Series of Cobalt(III) Complexes  Richard S. Herrick, Kenneth V. Mills, and Lisa P. Nestor
Describes an experiment that introduces students to integrated rate laws, the search for a mechanism that is consistent with chemical and kinetic data, and the concept of activation barriers and their measurement in a curriculum whose pedagogical philosophy makes the laboratory the center of learning for undergraduates in their first two years of instruction.

Polymer-Supported Reagents and 1H–19F NMR Couplings: The Synthesis of 2-Fluoroacetophenone  Nicola Pohl and Kimberly Schwarz
Describes an experiment in which 2-bromoacetophenone is converted to 2-fluoroacetophenone using a solid-phase nucleophilic fluorine source. The experiment introduces students to the utility of solid-phase reagents in organic synthesis, to NMR-active nuclei other than 1H without the requirement of a special NMR probe, and to the unique uses of fluorine in molecular design.
